This temple is a fabulous one to look at from the outside, as it is the only Japanese-style building in the immediate area. There is a pond outside, and the temple is right around the corner from many fine Japanese restaurants. San Jose Buddhist Church offers flower-arranging classes (also known as ikebana), Japanese language classes and judo practice. The central figure of the temple's altar is a traditionally ornate statue of the Buddha Amida, sculpted according to the Jodo Shinshu Nishi Hongwanji school of Buddhism.
